Hello people of XDA!!!
As you may know, my name is AFAinHD, and I'm here to show you, how you can create your very own boot animation.
What you will need:
A brain (Hey you bought a Nexus 7, you must have a brain laying around somewhere right?)
A root file explorer on your Nexus 7, I use Root Browser.
A rooted Nexus 7 (Duhh. )
Okay so now that you got your stuff, lets get to it.
First things first, lets round up our pictures that we want to be in the boot animation.
This is important, all of your pictures must be in .png or .jpg format, and they must be named like (something001, something002, something003, and so on.)
Now that we have our pictures all ready to go, lets start putting them into proper folders.
Let's just make a folder on our desktop called "New Boot Animation"
Now lets go ahead and put a subfolder here and name it "part0" (you can name it what ever you want but this is what I will be referring to later in the thread)
Now lets move all of our pictures into part0.
Now that we've got that we are going to have to make a text file telling the system what to do with these pictures.
Remember that program I told you to download? Notepad++? Here is where you need it.
Open up NotePad++ and create a new file.
Now the file is going to look like this...
808 1288 19 p 1 0 part0 p 0 0 part1
"808 1288" This is the resolution of your boot animation, for the Nexus 7 this is Width - 808 by Height - 1288.
"19" This is your frame rate, or the speed at which your boot animation will be playing by frames per second.
"p 1 0 part0" The "p" is telling the system to play this part, the "1" is how many times you want the system to play this folder (0 being infinate loops till boot) the "0" is how long should the system wait (in milliseconds) before playing the next folder, and "part0" is telling the system which folder to play with these settings.
So by this code I want the folder "part0" to play 1 time and then switch to folder "part1" with no delay, and I want "part1" to loop itself untill the Nexus 7 has completed it's boot.
(Remember you only need to put "part1" if you are going to have more than one folder playing)
Now lets go ahead and put this file into our main folder, and lets name it "desc.txt".
Okay, now we have the folders all completed. Now all we have to do is make this into a zip file.
Let's open up WinRAR and go into our folder.
Now lets select all the files and hit the button "add".
Now lets go ahead and change the archive name to "bootanimation"
On the left side change the archive format to Zip.
Right below that change the compression method to "store".
Now at the bottom hit "ok".
Now go check out your main folder, there will be a new file called bootanimation.zip.
(If you want to make your bootanimation flashable, that will be explained later on, be patient.)
Now go ahead and connect your Nexus 7 and move your bootanimation.zip to the root of your storage.
Now lets make it to our Nexus 7.
Go ahead and open your root file browser.
Go ahead and find your bootanimation.zip and copy it.
Now go to system>media
Now in this folder you will see your current bootanimation.zip, back it up, delete it, or rape it, it's your choice, but after that paste your new bootanimation.zip into this folder.
Now, restart your tablet, and profit.
Thanks for hitting thanks!!!
